Cokie Roberts discussed the writing and updating of her book We Are Our Mother’s Daughters, and her research into the roles of women throughout American history for it, before a crowd of about 700 at the PLA President’s Program.
“I, of course, use libraries all the time in doing research on these history books,” Roberts said. “It is amazing how much info is there and how helpful people are in getting it out.”
In the book, Roberts said, “I ask what is a woman’s place. It’s every place, because we’re needed every place.”
